Physicians well-being should always be top priority

“I should not be spending all this time on paperwork and accounting processes.” “I am a physician, not a biller.” “I need my day to have more than 24 hours”. “I should be earning more”. If you have said or thought about any of these, then you need to keep reading.

As stated by Ken Fisher, MD, on his article published in Medical Economics, “Physician well-being is vital to the delivery of good, cost-efficient care. Physician mental health is diminishing, and physician burnout is increasing, as reported in recent studies. This is becoming a national healthcare crisis…”

As we have worked closely with doctors from all over the country, we can also confirm this. Even though ending the struggle to find a work-life balance is complicated, there are ways you can start getting closer to the ideal balance, and we are here to help.

maxRVU can also certainly fill one piece in the balanced work-life puzzle. Imagine a world where you can send charges or solve a query from billing offices in less than 5 seconds.

This world exists, and you can start today for free with maxRVU.

More than 60 hospitals and practices are experiencing this new era in which they can save time and increase their revenue at the same time. Their charges get reimbursed faster, and a lot of their billing headaches are history now. We want to make you more efficient and happier.

Should Residents be required to have more training?

75% of physicians in our Health Care Professional Survey would have preferred more training on the Business of Medicine during their residency.

The most important aspect of training is learning how to properly care for your patients, but what happens when you complete training and you’re off in the real world of medicine?

There’s a lot of things they don’t teach you, like how medical billing works, how you will be compensated, and how to track that compensation.

maxRVU Charge Capture helps physicians track patient encounters at point-of-care. This is a pretty easy concept to understand, but what’s so special about our charge capture solution is that maxRVU supports Residents as well. You can learn proper coding techniques that go right along with your specialty, while attending physicians review the codes you submit before they’re handed off to the billing department.

CPT codes will no longer be a mysterious string of numbers, but instead a well-known code describing what procedures and consultation levels you performed. Better yet, you’ll track the Relative Value Units associated with the codes to get an idea of what your reimbursements would look like.
